dim sum at Oriental Garden

Stopped by this weekend for dim sum on Saturday-- around 11am, the small-ish space (for a dim sum parlor) was fairly empty, but it filled up by around 1pm when we were leaving.

The food was all nice and fresh-- particularly the shrimp dumplings were clean, bright and bursting w/ shrimp flavor. The vegetable dumplings had great textures inside and a round, earthy mushroom flavor.

The steamed bbq pork buns, unfortunately, were skimmpy on the filling which was somewhat bland and pastey. Just about everything else, including a fried pastry w/ bean paste and a salty egg yolk in the center were fresh and excellent. The staff was also very accomodating when we held a table and were waiting for other folks, and were friendly in discussing their menu.
